m

Hi everyone,

I've just joined CHOWHOUND because I'm looking for a few places to hold my 24th birthday dinner this December. Suggestions?

Guidelines:
- Downtown toronto for a group of 8 to 10 people coming by car and transit.
- Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night.
- I'm looking for one place that is affordable (some entrees <$25) to go with my friends that are still students.
- I'm looking for a second place that is upscale for my dinner with my boyfriend.
- I'm open to any cuisine. I really like Italian, Japanese, and Korean.

Thanks in advance everyone!

    For upscale Italian dinner with your boyfriend, I'd have to recommend Buca on King W. Great pizza, super atmosphere and beautiful space.

    I'll give your other query a think ....

      I vote for Buca too. I recently had a birthday dinner there with my boyfriend and it was lovely food. The selection of cheeses and cured meats especially. The next time we go, we will order a selection of small plates rather than mains though.

      Supermarket is the name that always comes up when people ask for student-friendly and relatively inexpensive.

      And how upscale is upscale?

        I'd say upscale is $50-100 per person.

        For the birthday, I would go to 7 West. It's not far from Yonge and Bloor, it has student friendly prices, and a great atmosphere. The only prob is that they don't take reservations, but they have three floors so I rarely run into any problems when I go with large groups.
